Overall Experience
Yes it was worth it. I learned how to work through some trails and tribulations that I was not expecting and made the best out of my time. I learned how to be more comfortable socializing in a group with my API friends as well. In turn that has made me more confident in the way that I carry myself. - Texas Lutheran University View Entire Review
One of the takeaway of my semester abroad, is that events that occur in my daily life are minuscule compared to the rest of the world. I learned to look at the bigger picture. - University of Hartford View Entire Review

Macquarie University was established in 1964, and has a student population of nearly 40,000 (over 11,000 of which are international students). Its beautiful campus is located in one of the largest business and technology precincts in the southern hemisphere, a mere 15 km from Sydney’s central business district, and is easily accessible by public transportation. Macquarie’s educational and athletic facilities are first-class, and the university features Australia’s most technologically-advanced private hospital on a university campus (and is home to Cochlear Ltd).

Macquarie University was established in 1964, and ranks among the top universities in Australia and the world in a number of subjects. It was awarded 5 stars in the prestigious QS Stars rating system for their high performance in areas such as teaching, research, graduate employability, and facilities. In fact, recent investments of over 1 billion dollars have helped make Macquarie one of the most technologically-advanced campuses in the country. Macquarie’s beautiful campus is located just 15 km from Sydney’s central business district via public transportation.
